Welcome to OWW Online

Welcome to OWW Online, the website for former pupils of Westminster School, which aims to provide everything OWW could need in order to remain involved with the School after they leave. Most OWW join the Elizabethan Club (the School’s alumni association) when they start at Westminster and should be receiving invitations to events and news from the School as well as the annual OW magazine and termly OW e-newsletter. If you are an OW and are not receiving these communications please do email us on alumni@westminster.org.uk or register for this site here to update your details. As well as a full calendar of OW events (see the list on the right hand side of the screen) as an OW you can also be involved as a mentor or seek careers advice as part of the Careers and Mentoring Programme. You can also join an OW sports team and enjoy the benefits of access to the School’s new Sports Centre and facilities at Vincent Square. While you are on the website do have a look at our ‘Brief History of Westminster School’ and if that whets your appetite for more information on the history of the School, do have a look at the You Tube channel which features old films shot by pupils as well as the current School video prospectus. If you have any feedback on this site or OW activity in general please do not hesitate to contact the Development Office – we’d love to hear from you.


It is with great sadness that we would like to note the passing of Daniel Topolski (WW, 1959-63). While he wore many hats- journalist, broadcaster, traveller, art curator- he will be remembered most for his lifelong love of rowing. Captain of Westminster’s Rowing Eight while at School, he remained a Boat Club fixture ever since and will be enormously missed. A full obituary can be found here.
1950s Decade Gaudy
Guests enjoyed a wonderful evening on 12 March at our 1950s Gaudy catching up over wine and canapés in the Camden Room and Gibbon Room and strolling around the renovated yard. To view photos from the event, please click here.
The Greaze 2015!
We would like to give our heartiest congratulations to James Mann (Upper Shell) who brought Greaze victory to Grant’s in this year’s competition! Video can be viewed here, and for the first time we are able to get an aerial view via drone!
Calling all Young OWW!
If you’ve left the School in the last three years we may not have your up to date contact details. To stay in touch with the School’s community and make sure you don’t miss out on event invitations, please use the contact update form to let us know where you are and what you’re doing. As well as event information, we can keep you better informed about initiatives that may benefit your career or appeal to your personal interests – such as our Careers and Mentoring programme, OWW sports fixtures or School concerts or talks.

Feature Article

We were delighted with the response to last night’s OW Women’s Network Panel Event and would like to thank everyone who braved the rain to join us in the Manoukian Music Centre for a lively discussion on “From Westminster to the Workplace”. A special thank you goes to our panellists, Kate Arnold-Forster (WW, 1973-75), Head of Reading University Museums, Anita De (GG, 1985-87) MD in Emerging Markets FX Sales at Citigroup, Ina De (GG, 1981-83), Co-Head of Investment Banking at JP Morgan and Neisha Santamaria (BB, 1997-99), Regional Product Lead at Google Shopping, as well as our Moderator, Gabrielle Ward-Smith, Housemaster of Purcell’s.

Discussion was wide ranging, covering topics including how your degree subject impacts your future career, the importance of networking and that loaded question about work life balance.

Panellists agreed that Westminster had paved the way in preparing them for their future, but not necessarily specifically for the world of work. All felt strongly about the importance of giving back to the School and helping to steward the next generation, which they certainly did yesterday, leaving guests inspired and queuing up to talk to them at the post-talk reception.

Our OW Women’s Network is still in its early stages, and as such we would love to hear your ideas for future events- what types of events would you like to see and what would be of the most interest to you? Please feel free to email alumni@westminster.org.uk with your ideas.

We would also like to remind everyone to please take advantage of our OW Careers and Mentoring Programme. We have mentors at every level, from Managing Directors with a wealth of professional experience behind them to recent Leavers who can advise others on topics such as the applications processes and interviews. We encourage you to get involved as a mentor, mentee or both, you can find out more here.
